Controller throttle and brake - Triggers or Right Stick ?
I'm new to F1 2018 and at this stage using a controller until I decide whether to get a wheel or not. All my racing games, which is really only the TOCA and GT games on PS1 & PS2, I've used the right stick for the throttle. I've also always driven AUTO gears. The shoulder buttons weren't analog either. In the past there wasn't all the complex options of pitting and fuel mix etc so really just needed to accelerate and brake.
Now with these extra demands, I'm finding it hard to use my old style set up as it means generally taking my thumb off the accelerator to access any of the action buttons. Having said that, I'm really not skillful enough yet to worry about fuel mix and I just pit when I get told.
What do others on a controller use and is it worth me putting in the time to try change?
